SAYER FAMILY HISTORY
of Leake and Pickhill
Sayre's parentage is not yet known but he was probably born sometime around
1576, a period when Queen Elizabeth had been on the throne for almost 20 years
and Papal recusants were being heavily fined for non-attendance at Church.
living in Leake, about 12 miles from High Worsall, by 1606 when son John was
baptised and little more is known of him, but John Sayre is believed to have
married Isobel and moved further south, to Pickhill, 7 miles from Leake,
sometime before 1636 where he had a son, also named Lancelot, baptised.
Unfortunately, the Pickhill with Roxby parish registers, which date from
1571, are incomplete.
interesting to note that a Thomas Crathorne, who owned property at
at about this time there lived an Adam Sayre who also had a son, Thomas (1639)
and it is tempting to surmise that John and Adam were of the same family and
quite possibly even brothers. They
have been tentatively linked on that basis.
now to John Sayre, his wife, Isobel, probably died in 1641 and John is thought
to have remarried and moved to
thought to have died in1671.
